Recent advances in satellite technology in terms of higher spatial resolution, multi-spectral bands and open data access, have enhanced the ability for the monitoring and management of coastal areas. Satellite images are to be one of the most potential alternatives to water depth estimation due to the wide area coverage, repeatability, and low cost.

Simulation: Damages from Climate Change-related Coastal Flooding could rise

Satellite image of coastal flooding

A study conducted by the Berlin-based think-tank Global Climate Forum (GCF) with the support of the University of Southampton includes a comprehensive global simulation result on future flood damages to buildings and infrastructure in coastal flood plains. The researchers conclude that over the next couple of decades the financial damages from storm surge flooding may rise from $10-$40 billion a year to up to $100,000 billion per year.
